Long-Term Care: State Policy Perspectives

fis12_240x240Many Wisconsin residents rely on long-term care services because of frailty or a disability. Although most long-term care is provided informally by family members, formal services are also provided in nursing homes, intermediate care facilities, and community-based settings. In 1996, Wisconsin spent approximately 1.2 billion Medicaid dollars to pay for long-term care services for those who could not afford them. In this seminar, three of the nation’s leading experts discuss who uses long-term care; in what settings it occurs; the role of the family caregiver; and what other states are doing to control the rate of increase in long-term care spending.
